Chapter Summary

In proceedings introduced by application, including incidental proceedings introduced by application, the applicant may at any time inform the Court in writing that it is not going on with the proceedings. The nature of discontinuance must be considered in close relationship with the circumstances of the particular case. The suspension of proceedings on the merits with the filing of preliminary objections does not affect the right of the applicant State to discontinue the mainline proceedings through the procedure of Article 89 of the Rules. Discontinuance of the preliminary objection proceedings by the party raising the objections terminates the suspension of the mainline proceedings initiated by the filing of the objections. Proceedings on a request for provisional measures are terminated in the same way as proceedings following a mainline application.
